With the Peacock TV app on PC. You stream current hits, hundreds of movies, thousands of episodes of TV shows, and exclusive Originals – plus timely news, live sports, and daily pop culture.
Why the Peacock TV PC app
Peacock TV for PC, the new streaming service from Comcast-owned NBCUniversal, is an experiment of sorts: Its tiled interface and big-name network make it look like a Netflix or Hulu competitor. But its content, which includes live news and sports, new original series, and a large back catalog of TV shows and movies — and the fact that it has a free tier — actually makes it more of a top-of-the-line free streaming service, like Pluto TV, Tubi, and Roku Channels.
Peacock TV for Windows intends to give you a traditional cable feel. With those channels combined with advertisements, NBCU hopes it makes you realize linear TV is a great option for your home. Maybe it will convince you to subscribe to a cable TV service.
What you can Watch
For the KIDS
Peacock does have a Kids page with a couple of popular shows like Curious George and, on premium, Dragons: Riders of Berk, but the catalog is definitely more adult-focused you can’t compare its kids’ offerings to those of Disney Plus or HBO Max. You can set parental controls and create a PIN to keep kids from watching anything over the rating of your choosing, though.
NBCUniversal Peacock will give you access to the NBC Sports channel, which features live sports talk programming like Pro Football Talk, The Dan Patrick Show, and The Rich Eisen Show.
So enjoy the latest NFL news with Pro Football Talk, exceptional interviews with Dan Patrick, along with sports, humor, and pop culture with Rich Eisen. And check out Peacock’s first original sports talk show, Brother From Another with Holley and Smith.
And last but not least, Peacock TV has been producing its own originals. So if you used to be a huge fan of Slater and Jesse Spano on Saved by the Bell, you may like Peacock’s brand new and improved version.
